Zenith award patch
« on: May 05, 2012, 11:27:20 AM »

On Pulp's forum they were so excited about the Spintastics patches that they decided to create new "personal" patches.  Most of these will be virtual patches: you get the right to use an image of the patch on your signature but probably no real patch will be mailed to you.
The main requirement to propose your personal patch is that you put up a video doing the tricks you ask for.  I think it is a great idea to motivate people.

The first one to do so was Zenith.  Here is the original post: Videos Parche Zenith Trick Award (in Spanish).  This is his patch:



The trick list:

1. Double Towers (Torres Gemelas)
2. Mach 5 to Gyroscopic Flop
3. Corkscrew plus blizzard
4. Cablecar
5. Elevator
6. Behind the Back Trapeze to Lasso
7. Staircase to Heaven
8  Snap Start ( 3 snap starts, uncut video, no more than 5 regens before bringing to the hand for 3 second spin)

And this is the video:



By the way, I will eventually have my own patch and it will also include staircase to heaven, as I plan to use tricks that I created or made known, and that one has to be on the list.

Neat concept, I hope it catches on.

I would modify the twin towers to be less offensive to U.S. audiences  ;D

Note admin: Painful more than offensive, I'd say. Changed it.

I don't think we are allowed to do Torres Gemelas in the U.S.  :-\

The trick (twin/double) towers as done in the video is giving the middle finger (twice!) to anyone watching.  U.S. folks can take offence as the middle finger is a sign of disrespect.

??? You can use your two thumbs: thumbs up!
Or you can extend all the fingers, like Gus likes to do.
I generally like to use my index finger to raise the top, but never gave it much thought.

By the way, the trick was named like that on a video by Cautín but I don't recall what fingers did he use.

I just saw this thread a few days ago. here is my run at these tricks.

I did my Double Towers with one hand so I could do the heavy metal salute. If I hear any complaining I'm going to re-do it with both yo-yo fingers up!

BTW Ta0, I know you made up "Staircase to Heaven" but if you are looking at making a level of your own it would be lame if it had a repeat trick off of someone's list. He beat you to it. Just be happy that your trick is cool enough that someone put it on there set.

Maybe I should do a set of my own.  :-)

Hey Jon! What a surprise to see you posting a video! Nice way of getting to 15 posts and being promoted from the newbie status on the forum  :D :D :D :D :D

I think you are the first one to go for the Zenith patch.  On the snap starts it shows why that top is named after you. Congrats! I am planning to do it myself as soon as I post some of the videos I took from Gus in Mexico.

Zenith asked me on the Spanish forum if he could use the Staircase to Heaven.  Don't worry, I plan to ask for a more challenging way of doing it.

EDIT:  You definitely need to make your own patch list!
